Indoor Plants

I was wondering what would be a suitable plant for my Kitchen. I'm thinking of the fumes etc that are generated in a normal kitchen and the effect these might have on a plant. The window is westnorthwest facing so only gets sun in late afternoon/evening. Temperature fluctuates between 12C and 20C but very rarely goes below 12C.

The normal 'fumes' of a kitchen are harmless to plants, though grease can descend, but these are vegetable oils.

Given the limited light, a peace lily might suit nicely ...long-lasting and long flowering with good leaves.
